I am afraid that what you would like to achieve is not currently supported by the TabStrip widget, but we will appreciate if you submit this as a feature request at our user voice page
. In this way the other users would be able to evaluate and vote for this idea. We will monitor the community interest and if your suggestion turns out to be popular we will consider it for one of our future releases.
